Color-Logic co-founder and CTO Richard Ainge, who also developed the Touch7 Neon process, recently briefed pro members of PaperSpecs on the power of the new fluorescent inks available on the latest digital presses.

Ainge’s comment regarding the briefing, “Touch7 was developed five years ago for conventional and digital presses, but as more digital presses with fluorescent inks become available, graphic designers often find themselves unclear about the potential and the pitfalls of fluorescents. We provided the PaperSpecs pro membership with an overview of color gamut expansion, the various print engines available, and the design software now on the market. OEM color guides available from press manufacturers were also described.”

PaperSpecs founder and CEO Sabine Lenz, commenting on the briefing, said: “PaperSpecs pro members were entranced by the presentation and suggested that material from the Color-Logic fluorescents briefing should be part of every design school curriculum.” One of the audience participants added, “I gained a significantly deeper understanding of the technical side of fluorescent design and how to enhance color intensity.”

PaperSpecs is a one-stop resource for print creatives. It is a place where like-minded graphic designers can hang out, ask questions, get tips, gain insights, and access the latest swatch books and promotions.

 

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
